Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland, Maine has a special emphasis on artists who have lived or worked in the Maine state. The museum’s collection of approximately 15,000 works focuses on American art from the 18th century to the present. Of these works, over 5,000 are searchable on the museum’s collection database using our Vernon Browser module.
The website features a clean layout on mobile, tablet and desktop screens, navigation by classification tags, and simple search filtering.
The home page provides access to broad areas of the collection, as well as to small highlight sets that illustrate specific themes. One example is “Through Women’s Eyes“, which showcases works by female artists in the collection.
The initial highlights sets include features on specific artists, including Louise Nevelson and Jonathan Fisher, as well as recent acquisitions into the collection. The “Art of Disaster” includes works from their collection depicting everything from shipwrecks to fires.
The results of any search can be easily filtered by artist, type of work and production date. For example, a search on “Maine” could be filtered to show only the fine art objects.
